Title: MATERIAL USEFUL AS ELECTRIC CONDUCTOR AND COMPRISING POLYACETYLENE OR SUBSTITUTED POLYACETYLENES INCORPORATED IN A MESOPOROUS SUPPORT, PRODUCTION PROCESS, AND CONDUCTORS MADE OF SAID MATERIAL
Abstract:
Material useful as electric conductor comprising a conductor polymer incorporated into channels within a porous support, wherein the polymer is polyacetylene or a polyacetylene derivative, the polymer being formed by polymerization of acetylenic monomer vapors which have been previously adsorbed in channels which are free of support structure director agent and which provide encapsulation of the polymer thereby protecting the polymer against oxidation by environmental oxygen; the support is a modified mesoporous aluminosilicate which has an average pore diameter between 2 nm and 100 nm such as hexagonal phase aluminosilicate of the type MCM-41 or cubic phase aluminosilicate of the type MCM-48. There is also disclosed a process for the preparation of such material and conductor materials, for example electrodes for batteries and conductor surfaces comprising such materials.
